Swiss International Air Lines
Swiss International Air Lines (SWISS) is Switzerland’s largest airline. Operating one of Europe’s youngest and most fuel-efficient aircraft fleets, SWISS provides direct flights from Zurich and Geneva that keep Switzerland connected with Europe and the world. Its Swiss WorldCargo division further offers an extensive range of airport-to-airport airfreight services for high-value and care-intensive consignments.
As The Airline of Switzerland, SWISS embodies traditional Swiss values and is committed to delivering the highest product and service quality. Being moderately sized, it is also particularly well equipped to get and remain closer to its customers and to offer them an air travel product that is specifically tailored to their individual needs.
SWISS is committed, long term and at various levels, to ensuring the careful and sparing use of resources, and has made a responsible attitude towards the environment, a cornerstone of its corporate culture. As part of the Lufthansa Group and a member of Star Alliance, SWISS also remains true to its mission of providing quality air transport services that connect Switzerland with Europe and the world.
Board of Directors
There are five members on the Board of Directors of Swiss International Air Lines (SWISS). Reto Francioni has been Chairman of the Board since 2016.
SWISS stands for quality and service. One important foundation for this are the goods and services provided by our suppliers, who are right at the beginning of the supply chain. Every year, we transport 16 million passengers, all of whom, directly or indirectly, come into contact with our suppliers’ products. We are therefore constantly seeking partners who are able to help us live up to our promise to our customers. In order to be able to operate economically, we live a culture of continuous cost and quality optimisation, which enables us to offer our customers an attractive service.
As a part of the Lufthansa Group, we also benefit from a strong purchasing community. At the same time, though, we are also independent enough to be able to procure through our purchasing department all the goods and services that make us the leading Swiss airline.
Something for every taste
SWISS is committed to cultural, entertainment and sporting events organised by the association “Swiss Top Events”, and selected image partners and institutions that reflect Switzerland’s cultural and sporting appeal.
The high degree of quality of these events, the international appeal and the attractive hospitality platforms optimally support the SWISS values.
